As most of us know, the TP Meet-up in Montreal is still a go for the weekend of Setember 24th & 25th. It's also no secret that the TP Overlords, Sam & Peter, will be in attendance too.
This (second) meet-up thread is here so those members who are planning to attend, have a place to post their itineraries - date and time of arrrival and hotel accomodations. (And, because the original thread is 26 pages so it's almost impossible to gleen pertinent info from it quickly.)
It would be nice to have all attendees who require hotel/hostel accommodations in a somewhat centralized location. (Having everyone spread out all over the city will make it harder to get together and then it wouldn't be a meet-up anymore... )
The only two hotels mentioned in the original thread are:
Hotel Le Saint Malo
Possible best meeting place for drinks, etc:
Please use this thread to post your travel plans and accomodations. It will make the final planning much easier for everyone. Thanks so much!!!!!
See you in Montreal!!!

umm good idea on the thread, i kinda havent done shit other then start to get my passport ready and stuff, i have no idea where im gonna stay, either. can i just get a place when i get there or does it not work like that there. or could i split something with somebody? i think it'd be a cool opportunity to get and know someone. anyway so i guess i could use some info on that. thanks a bunch
Ok, here are my definite plans (plane ticket and all):
Via Delta Airlines:
I arrive on Sep 23rd around 4 PM.
I return on Sep 25th around 6:20 PM.
I made a reservation with Hotel Le Saint-Malo. It is $71 a night which for Montrel seems very reasonable. I am actually going to research a couple of more places and keep you posted but more than likely I will be staying here.
Hey Isa, I like that Hurley's place! It definitely looks like a great place to hang out. Ok, I will keep you posted if anything changes.
The hotels and Hurley's were gleaned from the old thread.
I have started a Word document to keep track of the arrival/departure dates and hotels. (Just for easy cross-referencing purposes.) Thought everyone should know.
Thats a great idea! I was actually thinking...do you think our cells phones will work in Canada? Probably not...we are going to have to rely on being at a certain place at a certain time for all of us to meet. Otherwise we will have to leave word at the front desk of the hotel if any changes arise so everyone is notified (hence making your list very very useful ).
Most, if not all, American cellphone plans will work in Canada. However be prepared to pay huge roaming and longdistance fees. I wouldn't use it other than for emergencies (or you have deep pockets).
I can get more details if you'd like. My sister lives down in central Texas and comes up here every few months.
If anyone wants to share a room send me a PM.
hehe, someone called me an overlord
Erm, yes, I will certainly be here. No accommodation booked as of yet, but if there's a few staying in the same place, I'll probably just go for that. A little bird informed me that Pete is booking his ticket this week too....
Oh, and I arrive at YUL (which I hope is the right airport) at 19.30ish (7.30 pm) on the 22nd, fully jetlagged and all. I'll send my mobile number to TP mom. It will work (as long as you have a triband or north american phone) and can be useful for texts and the like...
Looking forward to it!!!
I was just checking their availability here on TP and they only have beds left on the Thursday according to the system. Looks nice though. I'll have to try and see if they can find a spare couch somewhere...
